tayloris20!

Those of you who’ve been following this blog for a long time know that my son Taylor graduated from high school last year.   I chronicled that journey with him here and am so glad to have the memories recorded.  I wrote about his band The Verity and about his antics with Andrew and even […]

As most of  you know, I’m remodeling my new kitchen.   Since my other house hasn’t sold, I left a LOT of my stuff in the old house so I don’t have to move it twice.   When I needed to make a cake for a dear friends’ birthday, I lamented the fact that my […]

Deeds not Creeds?

by Edie Wadsworth on May 26, 2010

The girls and I were studying the reformation in history. I could hardly believe it when I went to my local library to check out some books on Martin Luther and was not able to find even one book on Martin Luther or the reformation in the junior section of our library.   Not one. […]

Guess what we did this weekend?

~We bought some training skis (that are connected together and require an adult to hold the other end of the rope) and Emme got up on her 2nd try.   I yelled and squealed like a school girl.   Steve took Taylor and his friends (on the regular skis) and everyone had a blast. ~We […]

A numbered list of minutiae

1.  By day,  I’ve been teaching my girls and then traipsing to dance classes and then over to the old house to get it ready to sell.  I love that house.   I will always love that house.   It’s like visiting an old friend—who’s wearing a  really cool turquoise dress.   By night, the […]

good news/bad news

by Edie Wadsworth on May 11, 2010

platewall

The good news is: I finally finished my asymmetric plate wall in my dining room. My dear sister, who was here for Mother’s Day, even approved. And she’s not usually a fan of anything asymmetric. The bad news is: I fear I may be channeling Mrs. Roper from 3′s Company. I’ve taken ‘house dress’ to […]

My Dual Personality

mothersday

My life has become a dichotomy of old house, new house. At the new house: The girls and I have been making tissue flowers and sugar and salt scrubs for Mother’s Day.   The ladies in my extended family are coming over for high tea on Saturday.    And I’m making this frangelico cake (I […]

TMI?

by Edie Wadsworth on May 5, 2010

I’m blogging today over at Melissa’s place. I’m talking about motherhood and vulnerability.   Oddly enough, in my real life, I’m getting my first mammogram.   I will soon be the expert in vulnerable now won’t I?   Doctors make the worst patients but after your urgent pleading (Darby) I’ve also scheduled my yearly preventive […]

Kitchen Dilemma

by Edie Wadsworth on May 4, 2010

kitchendilemna

I’m sitting on my new deck watching the geese and egrets fly by and the lake water ripple, drinking a wonderful cup of coffee as I type this.   I still haven’t shaken the feeling that I’m on vacation—in Hilton Head—with no definite endpoint for my return ‘home’.   The only downside to living your […]

Where do the years go? Can she possibly be old enough to dress up and go to prom? She has become a beautiful woman. And I am one lucky mother.
